at marina boulevard. stunt seem to be causing a huge backup just yet, but could be an issue. the second crash at industrial parkway. that would be down in the hayward area, and you can see there is a bit of a backup building there, just about back up to highway 92, and in that particular case, a car wound up on the center divide, and the two fast lanes are blocked right now for that investigation. so be aware, as you head out the door early on this wednesday morning. now let me take you outside. i'll show you a live picture from our emeryville camera. you can see the roadways are wet, and that's why we are seeing as many crashes as we have so far this morning, but the traffic is moving along pretty nicely around the mcarthur maze. down in the south bay, there's the story. 280 in san jose is moving along, still very nicely. we're not showing any major crashes or incidents in the san
jose area. we will hope that it stays that way. 5:19 is the time. mark is here now with how much more rain we can expect throughout the morning. mark, good morning. >> good morning. yeah, it's going to be busy between now and 8:00 this morning. some changes setting up later in the day for your wednesday. th it has been a pretty intense storm system, as you know. probably woke you fun the middle of the night, not only with the rainfall, but the strong gusty winds. we do have this, an urban and small dream flood advisory this will 5:45 this morning. a flash flood watch is posted for the santa rosa mountains this morning. you can see that's a flash flood warning in place until 6:45. look at that benlomand rainfall total. over six inches of rain. so a rapid rise in the creeks and rivers. that is a concern right now. also this, the area shaded in red, that's a flash flood
warning, as well. so that flash flood warning is 234 place until 7 -- is in place until 7:45 this morning. let's show you some of the storm reports out there, so you can see some intend storm reports scattered around portions of the bay area. come in closer, we'll click on a couple of these to show you, at least reports of some flooding. two feet of water in the road near heather and oak circle. the road has been temporarily closed. that was from last night. we'll have to see if that is actually still closed tout there. but still wide spread reports at least minor flooding and also some wind reports, as well. there is the coverage on the radar. the north beginning to back off a little bit, as we shift the maps, close to san francisco and oakland, not as much coverage there, but as we come in closer here toward portions of the east pay, there you can see closer to hayward and union city, dublin, and pleasanton, so we do have downpours for this portion of the region. the south bay, not as much
coverage, but around san mateo and redwood city, still have some rainfall nearby. here is the bigger picture out here in the pacific. what is key here is what we call an atmospheric river. you see the clouds condense in this one year, being focused toward this bay area. it's set up yesterday, and it will set up again this weekend. this weekend could be even more than intense. potential rainfall could be 2 to 6 inches for the coastalle hills. so that will will be a serious flood concern as the water continues to build up. still some scattered rain showers in san francisco this morning, and then into the afternoon hours. we scale back on the coverage, and the probability. can't guarantee a completely dry forecast, but still a chance of some showers later on today. in fact, here is our forecast model right now, 5:00 al, and then 7:00, still some rain out there. but then some more breaks in the action. 9:00, and then into the afternoon hours by 2:00 and by 4:00, men and tomorrow morning, tomorrow afternoon, should be dry, with maybe a slight chance of a sprinkle tomorrow morning.
but here is the next weather setups. of course we're already dealing wet the rainfall right now, but look at what sets up this weekend. that will be a significant rain event as we head towards saturday into sunday. temperatures for this afternoon, mainly in the upper 50s, so not a big story there, but the rainfall will continue to be. be extra careful on the roads this morning, a lot of standing water out there, and that one this weekend could be a big deal. typically we talk about a one- day rain event. this could be a two-day rain event, so especially by sunday, we could see some more added problems. >> and steady. >> yeah, not only the rain, but the wind. >> time is 5:22. all right. it's a go-to cab company for feel in while chairs, but that may be chasing. up next, the owner of luxor cans tells us why he may have to reduce that service.

my name is jamir dixon and i'm a locafor pg&e.rk fieldman most people in the community recognize the blue trucks as pg&e. my truck is something new... it's an 811 truck. when you call 811, i come out to your house and i mark out our gas lines and our electric lines to make sure that you don't hit them when you're digging. 811 is a free service. i'm passionate about it because every time i go on the street i think about my own kids. they're the reason that i want to protect our community
and our environment, and if me driving a that truck means that somebody gets to go home safer, then i'll drive it every day of the week. together, we're building a better california. we're turning our attention to the weekend with a strong system being directed to the bay area. you probably heard the rainfall overnight and the wind, as well. that was a pretty strong system moving in. look at those numbers adding up
quickly. santa rosa over two inches. oakland .94, san jose not as much, a quarter of an inch. wind advisory has expired, but verified. you can see winds gusting to over 50 miles an hour. san francisco 42 miles an hour. we'll come in closer, this is a little more extreme. this is a flash flood warning. look at hat ben lomand rainfall together, 6 inches over the last 24 hours.
here is the big picture the pacific. here is the moisture tap sets up. we are talk about a stronger storm. we'll talk more about that in a few minutes. alex is standing by with an update on the roadways. >> yes, a lot of spin out and single car crashes. thankful through, none of these crashes have been all that serious. we haven't seen any huge backups. that he probably because we haven't seen the traffic volume really pick up intensity here. but that's going to happen soon. so we do not want any more of these rashes throughout the morning commute. here is live look at the bay bridge tomorrow plaza. that is already starting to clear up here as we head
towards 5:30. now we'll show you a live look at highway 4, and we are seeing that more and more people are hopping on the road heading out of antioch and pittsburgh, heading west on highway 4. the good newss is, not showing any crashes in that particular area. you want to be aware of here, this is a crash at bancroft road, and the police department there is urging people to avoid this area if they can that is obviously a major thoroughfare and walnut creek a good area to try to avoid this morning, as police investigate a crash there. now, of course, wet reading
creating challenges for drives in san francisco, the weather has contributed to several crashes in the city this morning. and you are seeing some flooding in one area? >> reporter: yes, we came out here because we heard reports of some cars hydro plaining. there was about a 150-foot long flood area. at the base of the exit here. but luckily, caltrans came over pretty quickly and drained it out. so we're seeing cars go through right now, and doesn't look like any splash back at all, so we're cleared out for now. law enforcement was plagued with several accidents in and around the city this morning, out on highway 280, there was a multiple car crash right before

supply, as we all try to recover from years of drought. yesterday, the state water resources department took it's first snow survey of the year, and found the water contents about half of normal, but that's pretty good news, because a week ago, the ground was pretty much bear. about 30% of california's water supply does come from the sierra snow pack. >> there was a few patches of snow, and most of this snow that we measured today came down if in the last couple of days, and is continuing to come down. >> acarding to the u.s. drought monitor, as of last week, 58% of california was classified as being in a severe drought, which is down from 88% a year ago. >> well, the bay area isn't the only place where bad weather is causing problems now. tornadoes in georgia, alabama, and mississippi, have killed at least six people. more than a thousand homes have been damaged by the high winds, chevy rain, and falling trees. a sheriff in georgia says his county has been really hit
